William Thomas White (Minister of Finance and Receiver General)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. WHITE:

When I spoke of uniformity, I quoted not only the Inland Revenue Act, but the Inspection and Sale Act, under which any penalty or forfeiture exceeding $40 may be sued for and recovered by any inspector, deputy inspector, or other person. I also referred to the Customs Act, under which the penalty may be recovered " by the Attorney General, or' in the name or names of the Commissioner of Customs, or any officers of the customs, or other person or persons thereunto authorized by the Governor in Council, either expressly or by general regulation or order, and by no other person." It was in reference to those statutes in particular that I spoke of uniformity. My right hon. friend, however, says the matter is not worth wasting any further time on.

Topic:   SPECIAL WAR REVENUE BILL.
